Shyne claims that 50 Cent gave police information about Irv Gotti, and was key in taking down Murder Inc.
Shyne has been on his soapbox late with a few in hip hop, callingÂ Kendrick Lamar’s album “trash”, his interaction with Game, and now he is firing at 50 Cent. In an interview, Shyne sheds light on Irv Gotti’s demise.
Shyne says he encountered 50 center when he was writing for Diddy. At the time, he’d gotten into a scuffle with Murder Inc. and was so afraid of what could become of the situation that he hired security to make sure he was safe. Shyne claims that 50 Cent provided information to the police on Gotti’s possible business dealings with Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, a known drug dealer. “I swear to God he was in Daddyâ€™s House in the lounge and he had security. He hadnâ€™t sold one record. He hadnâ€™t even put an album out… 50 Cent was nobody, nobody knew who he was.”
According to Shyne, the protection 50 got was equivalent to that of a famous artist, drawing a comparison to Jay-Z.
â€œHov was already selling millions of records, so of course you got to have security with you, cause you donâ€™t wanna blow that investment. … (50 Cent) was hiding from Irv Gotti and Murder Inc. Heâ€™s the reason that Irv got indicted. Heâ€™s the reason that Kenneth Supreme McGriff is in prison for the rest of his life.â€
